He was awaiting trial on beating his pregnant ex girlfriend so I can hardly cry for him. But considering he was my age and an extremely talented person (I had to convince myself to not stream his music out of principle but it was a guilty pleasure, nonetheless) I can’t help but be somber about it. It’s a tough world out there.
And the way he was shot in his nice ass car and robbed of a louis vuitton bag proves how useless material wealth is when faced with death. Nothing matters when you leave this place except the ways you affected the people around you. And unfortunately for him? His legacy isn’t the kind to be proud of61
I’m going to sound like the typical X fan, but I don’t care.
This man made some incredible music. He talked about his depression and how he wants to change his past. I also suffer from depression and his music has made it better to deal with. His album “17” is still one of my favorite albums to this day. Just this afternoon I was listening to his song “Everyone dies in their nightmare” on my way home from the gym. I took a four hour nap, woke up to find the news that he has been shot in Miami and declared dead. I was in shock and even shed a tear. I didn’t think it was real, but then multiple sources confirmed it. I was sad that a young man who was trying to help people was killed, I was sad that there is not going to be anymore music coming from him, I was sad that murder exists and that his life was taken away so swiftly and at such a young age. His music will never be forgotten and the affect he has had on me.
I never heard of him, but that picture kind of says it all. Hate and arrogance. From what I read about him, he was a violent monster, tortured his pregnant girlfriend, and didn't do ANYTHING to make this world a better place. It doesn't surprise me about what happened to him. It's happened to other rappers.62

I don't know who that is.13
If I can be 100% honest, I don’t give 2 shits whatsoever. Nada. I just wonder why this person was shot, and my hunch tells me that he was part of the wrong crowd.712
I've never heard of him until all my friends started making posts of him. I looked at what his fans and what people say about him when he passed away. He really made people feel motivated and inspired. He made everyone happy and he was someone to relate too. He had a rough past but everyone makes mistakes and not everyone is meant to be perfect. I don't understand why people are still talking about his past and what's really important is how he wanted to change and wanted everyone to be positive place. He died very young and he will be missed. I never listened to his songs before or was a fan, but I feel bad for him. what really made me disgusted the most is how people starting filming and zooming into his lifeless body. It really makes me think how disgusting this society is. RIP25
Quite some people don’t care because they’re either old hags, sleep under a rock or probably never listened to him but oh well. But anyway, It really broke my heart because he was and will always be my favorite rapper. Although he made so many mistakes before and I don’t support any of it he tried to turn his life around and change for the better. His music has helped those who suffer a lot in life and I appreciate him for that. Rest In Peace Jahseh, you will not be forgotten41
I think anyone who beats the shit out of their pregnant girlfriend does not have a high profile in my book. 😉90
I feel sorry for his friends and family but at the same time I can't feel sorry for a man who was a horrible person. It's a fucked up situation and hopefully they catch the men who shot and robbed X.
He beat his pregnant girlfriend, almost beat another man to death, supported a racist murder, mocked the murder's victims, and tweeted "death to dark skins".50
Who isn't shot dead in america
Thats a better question
Ya its def no the gun that made it that easy to do a drive by shooting. Yup. Def not the gun lol
Guns are totally innocent playful toys40
It's sad that people are making jokes. And talking about him being a thug and that's what happens but he actually was leaving a car dealership and was robbed. No matter if you liked his music or not he is still a person that just lost his life. It's really sad.20
at least part of his appeal was tied to the frankness with which he discussed committing serious offenses, ranging from armed robbery – a charge stemming from a 2015 incident which predated “Look At Me!” – to resisting arrest. He spoke extensively about his violent time in juvenile detention on the No Jumper podcast, and his perceived authenticity was central to the young rapper’s appeal as his profile rose.
Eventually, his charges would become more disturbing. By October 2016, Onfroy would be charged with beating his ex-girlfriend to the point where “the victim could not see.” Other allegations of abuse would eventually surface, first published in investigations from Pitchfork and, later, in the Miami New Times. www.rollingstone.com/.../xxxtentacion-shot-dead-at-20-w52168410
I don't wish death on anyone but from what I have heard.. this person was not a good person. That he abused many women. I also believe that if you play with fire like he was doing, that you'll eventually get burned- just as he did.
No one deserves to die but I can't say that I'm sad.10
I don't care for his music. Not a fan of him whatsoever but its sad that a life has been wasted smh. He was just 20 years old too. He had a whole life to turn around and make right choices and be a great influence. That is if he wanted to. We may never know now10
Never even heard of him until last night. But I saw a bunch of backlash on him on IG, which made me dig a little bit. He seemed harmless in the few videos I saw then Someone said...”I hope you enjoy hell” and people were liking it. So okay he had a very troubled past, it sounded like he was trying to better himself. I don’t know the whole story. Either way, he was kid and it’s a shame he had to go out like that.10
He was a messed up kid that got famous not sure that would have ended well however, no one deserves to be killed like that. I despised him but it's sad that the world is such a shitty place.
Wish more people knew about how others suffer around the world. Men dying for wars they don't know the purpose of and women being kidnapped for marriage and raped. It happens every day.
X death isn't more sad than the rest of them.10
It’s a shame he was murdered, but the tributes to his importance & character are overrated. He didn’t prove he’d turned things around long enough to show he’d changed.
Now he’s getting martyr status in the music world - overglorifying a legacy that had neither blossomed nor failed yet.
It’d been better if he’d went to jail, did his penance and then we could see what turned out.24
It's always somewhat of a waste when a young life is taken. I have read that he was not exactly a nice person for much of his life but was trying to turn it around. Still, some people view this as karma. His days of crime and woman beating didn't earn much sympathy.0
I was shocked and upset, I wasn't a die hard fan but I did like his music so it was crazy to hear the news. I heard some people saying that he deserved to die, but even though there were some alleged abuse charges against him, I don't truly believe he deserved to die. what are your thoughts?0
I never really heard o him till last week then hear about this today, I dont approve of anything he did violence wise true or false I just dont think that someone that young should have created such enemies because obviously he was targeted. There are crazy people out there and he had a whole life to live.0
Well as of right now, he’s still in critical condition. I feel bad about what happened to him and no I really don’t know much about him or his music but what I did hear is that he was a positive being and trying to turn his life around when it came to the mistake he made. We all aren’t perfect and sometimes things happen but he didn’t deserve to get shot.
I’m trying to keep faith that he’ll pull through and next time, pay attention to his surroundings.7
I was truly in shock. I liked his song Sad and Moonlight, but with that being said, he did a lot of messed up things and I don't care if he was young he was still an adult that needs to own up to his actions. This is a tweet he posted the day after the Charleston.3
I kind of feel bad for him. He was very misunderstood and I kind of think that he was going through a lot of shit. Either depression or some other serious mental health issue. So sad that he died at such a young age, we keep losing them to the different things that fame has to offer. Some of his music was really good though and it was kind of a mood.0

I thought I would bring this up since nobody else has and its a big part of why people never liked him.
But there has been a lot of controversy over him beating his pregnant ex-girlfriend. It was actually confirmed that she lied about being pregnant, she wasn't at all.
Then there was a lot of talk about her lying about the whole situation, that she self inflicted those wounds. Then there are other things conflicting those allegations. I'm not sure what the truth is, but the fact that she lied about being pregnant loses credibility. Although I am not downplaying the assault, it could very much be true. Although I have seen many accounts where she took back the allegations and said he just broke a couple things and she wanted to get him in trouble.
Which isn't that off the fence in my opinion since she lied about being pregnant to make the story worse, which is just weird. But all of that aside, he was a good rapper and he was going somewhere and he died very young.
His childhood essentially sucked and he group up with a very rough adolescence as well. Of course he is going to make mistakes, he is young and in that type of environment. It was obvious he was trying to change his life around (or at least it seemed like it, whether thats true or not, who knows). But he is dead now, and its time to lay all of this to rest. A lot of other stars did terrible things as well, I haven't seen the kind of backlash on them because it happened when they were younger as well. He just happened to die during the heat of it all.
